Take to your feet: Spring training for golf season

Jericho, N.Y. (March 2, 2023) - Just as pitchers and catchers are reporting to Spring Training before the new baseball season, pitchers and chippers are getting ready for their new season—of golf. 

Spring means dusting off the golf clubs and one’s swing, dreaming of spacious fairways, and that eternal rite of spring, The Masters. In planning to return to their favorite courses, golfers are always on the lookout for an edge, that new piece of equipment, that magic tip that will make this their best year ever.

Here’s the best tip we know, one guaranteed to improve both comfort and performance for every golfer who plants two feet in the ground.  Upgrade your socks.  And that means Tall Order.

Tall Order low cuts socks are packed with performance and comfort features that golfers demand to make the most of their stance and swing, just like other athletes. Features include: 

  • Heel tab for extra comfort and slip protection
  • Cushioned sole
  • Arch support
  • Moisture control
  • Smooth seam
  • Polyester material to provide extra stretch and ensure soft, comfortable fit

Tall Order’s Special Edition 2-pack ALL RISE socks are available in regular and extended sizes. In line with Tall Order’s mission, $10 is donated to the Aaron Judge ALL RISE Foundation for every pack sold. The ALL RISE Foundation inspires children and youth to become responsible citizens by engaging them in activities that encourage them to reach unlimited possibilities.

All Tall Order styles are available in sizes 9 to 20+ and suitable for men or women. For ease, the sizes are printed on the bottom of each pair. These socks, with grippers added, are being adapted for golf and will be available for purchase for Father’s Day 2023.

If you didn’t think baseball and golf had other ties besides the joys of spring, consider that Judge, last year’s major-league MVP and home-run king who has been wearing the socks since April 2021, liked the special Tall Order socks so much that he is now an equity partner in the company. He obviously voted with his feet!

“Many of the same qualities that Aaron needs when patrolling the outfield and hitting home runs—stability, cushioning, compression—help golfers make their best and most effective swings,” said Lisa Friedman, CEO of Tall Order. 

Judge also likes that a percentage of all Tall Order sales is donated to charities. In the past five years, the young company has contributed more than $300,000 to several charities including the Aaron Judge ALL RISE Foundation.

Tall Order will introduce other performance products soon. They offer customization (even on small orders) and truly personal customer service.

About Tall Order

Tall Order was founded in 2017 by Lisa Friedman and her two sons, Mike and Dan. After Lisa’s husband and the boys’ father perished in the September 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, the family sought to ease their pain by bringing vital supplies—including socks—to First Responders.  Two decades later, grown up—Mike is 6 feet 11 inches, Dan 6 feet 9 inches—and in the business world, both men were looking for more personal satisfaction. Specifically, a way to make a difference while creating stylish accessories for men of stature like themselves as well as products for men and women of all shapes and sizes. Along with their mother’s friend Rachel Furer, they created Tall Order—the name referring to the “tall order” it would take to pay back those who helped them in their hour of need—and with it the promise of funding charities that help children whose lives have been disrupted. Today, Tall Order is a dynamic men's and women’s accessory company specializing in classic, dress, and athletic socks in sizes 9-20+ as well as underwear and tees for men of all sizes.
